I appreciate the input embe. Though I believe that just as in the mainstream world, there's room for box sets. There's room for these types of releases as well, which are essentially "box" sets.

My only concern when first releasing an Xtended Edition was how to package it. Whether or not to separately zip each disc. However, I decided to keep the complete set together. With this release, I was really curious to see if the FLAC version would even be downloaded, with it's 1.1Gb size. So far, people seem to be more interested in FLAC this time around.

So far, the response to each of the releases is normal.

I do understand that there will be people who won't have the patience to dig through 68 tracks. IMO, that's their loss. With each release, you just can't please everyone. That's ok.

"you just can't please everyone": that's true; i was just speaking for myself: i want to go through all releases, and sometimes it's way too much

but i know the finest tunes will emerge someday on one of your compils

cheers,
